wood type

For a while I've been meaning to collate a few complete alphabets of wood type prints. This ended up being the basis for a HUGE book I made in december for our batch production project. Over 5 books I printed 1040 pages in letterpress, each page looked like the one above, containing one example of wood type. Most came from the tray of odd letters in the letterpress workshop which are either broken or don't belong anywhere. Anyway, the other day I spent about 4 hours scanning every page so I could have a digital version. When I eventually get my website up and running I would like to put them all up.
